Wolff considers future but admits there is "no reason not to continue with Mercedes"

Wolff considers future but admits there is "no reason not to continue with Mercedes"

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff insists there is "no reason not to continue" with the team in Formula 1.

Wolff has overseen Mercedes' domination of the sport in the V6 Hybrid era, taking every constructors' and drivers' championship since 2014.

When asked if he would remain as team principal for 2021 and beyond, Wolff kept his cards close to his chest.

"I really have enjoyed many years in Formula 1 in that role," he said.

"The discussions that we are having are very good. I’m happy that my relationship with Ola [Källenius - Daimler chairman] is probably as good as it can be and we speak almost every day.

"There are many factors that make me want to stay in Formula 1. On the other side, it takes a toll and this plays into my consideration but as it stands, there is no reason not to continue with Mercedes and we will find out in which role."

Wolff's future may decide the outcome of Lewis Hamilton's contract negotiations, with the reigning champion previously indicating he would not make a decision until the Austrian's stance was confirmed.

Speaking at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2019, Hamilton said he was "waiting to see where Toto's head is at".

The Briton added: "It is a difficult one. I know that being stuck in a position for too long is not always a positive. I want people to spread their wings and do what is best for them. Only Toto will know what that is.

"But I know that you have to have the right people in place, especially as the figurehead of a business. He is the perfect match, so I don't want him to leave.

"What has been built will continue for a period of time but a new person coming in will start doing things his own way and most likely it will go wrong."
